A Case For Secession
The Macroview Blog makes a good case that secession can be good for all the parties involved, at least the way I read it. There shouldn't be a need for any gun play if all parties voluntarily go their seperate ways. Which got me to wondering, and I don't think I can come up with an example: Has there ever been a case of a country booting out a smaller part of it as I've suggested the U.S. do to California?
I'm coming up blank. It seems the rule is for countries to try and assimilate more property.
